Rise of Commodity Malware - Stories From The Trenches - Vicky Ray, Principal Researcher - Unit 42, Palo Alto Networks

Cybercrime persists as an epidemic that continues to worsen every year, with associated impacts and losses on an alarming rise. Key contributing factors to the enormous growth of losses and the related impact from cybercrime have been the convenience, speed, and anonymity that the Internet provides to enable online crimes. In the growing cybercrime landscape, considerable attention is paid to high profile breaches and other more disrupting malware families, such as ransomwares.

However, the impact of malware such as Commodity RATs (Remote Access Trojans), which are bought and sold on easily accessible underground forums, can cause equal damage—if not more. This talk will cover some case studies shedding light on collaborative investigations when dealing with the ever-growing threat from such commodity malware.

Fingerpointing False Positives: How to Better Integrate Continuous Improvement into Security Monitoring - Desiree Sacher, Security Architect for a Security Operation Center, Finanz Informatik

This talk explains how to bring back intelligence to Security Monitoring. In security event management, all alerts are usually reviewed and classed as either true positive or false positive. The solution presented describes ways to document the company's security state that will help initiate improvement steps, without the need to purchase yet another product but by going beyond that old classification model.

By updating the analysis process, you will not only improve the company's security efficiency but also make a difference in analyst motivation by eliminating false alarms as part of a structured approach.
